The more removed a person is from the classroom and subjects studied, the longer it takes to prepare. The average prep time for a test-taker is three weeks.
Although a lot of people need help, the number of staff members and volunteers isn't sufficient to accommodate everyone. Soon there will be a waiting list for E-S-L and G-E-D classes.
Registration for the classes is on a first-come, first-serve basis. If classrooms fill up, the staff makes referrals to other prep centers in the region.
